looking forward to getting out of the house, getting enough rest at the proper time and going to church with a wonderful band and singing and listening to the sermon! That was more than one, hopefully it's ok otherwise I shall post somewhere else next time.

Oh okay - another person from Florida. From what @zonebox says I think i'd probably like it there - lots of old people (like me) and they drive around nice and slow. (plus it's nice and warm) I should move there one day.

I'd take a parka for sure. I'm thinking I might go to London again soon - but I'll leave it till the weather warms up a bit. I was there and in Paris in the winter back when I was manic and it was bloody cold.

You would have to move to a smaller town/city, maybe. But any of the major cities will have pretty bad traffic. For example, Miami is #4 in the rudest cities of the US and #6 for worst traffic lol

Well...I hope I survive then. &#x1f91e;

They are much older than you Harrison, and they do drive really slow. The problem is, a lot of them are also heavily medicated, and have a delayed response. They will often pull out in front of you while you are moving at 55 mph, it is pretty scary around here at times. Otherwise it is actually kind of boring around here, it is mostly doctor offices, churches, generic restaurants, and get this.. not a single bookstore Well, I do think there is one old beat up used book store actually, which sells mostly novels. They did put in a large assisted living facility just a few weeks ago though.



Where I live, it is kind of bland, stucco homes almost all either a tan, pink, or light blue color, almost all of the a single story, same with the stores. I do live about ten minutes from the gulf, which is pretty cool, but it is so overpopulated here. The population is listed slightly less than 100,000 with a median age of 44 - but that does not include all of the snowbirds, which we have a lot of. Also that census was in 2010, back in 2010 we were going through a large recession, a lot of houses were empty.. now they are all full, I imagine we are probably at around 150,000 now

Take a look at how packed we are in together in this google map.





https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_Hill,_Florida




The roads are never really that empty this time of year, it is usually bumper to bumper here. The video was released in July, so most of the snowbirds were gone.


I took this video 8 years ago, it gives a pretty good look at my neighborhood, and even has my boat in it Unfortunately, my boat is now on the side of my house and covered in vegetation. I feel really uncomfortable working on it, because people moved in next door and climbing on top of it, gives me a full view of their house.




We may be moving soon though, because it looks like they are putting in a new commercial business, my house may become a parking lot I'm okay with that, I would prefer something with a little more privacy. We purchased this house for $69k in 2008, now it is valued at 120k, so we could afford to move up a bit.

Live and let live

I've been to Spring Hill...don't you all have a lot of sinkholes? It's not a major city. Definitely what I'd consider a smaller town. Florida is very diverse. Takes 8 hrs to drive from the south of the state all the way to the north. So it's hard to paint an overall picture. North is closer to what we call the "bible belt" of the US and the south is more latin flavored.

@aqwsderf


We make the top ten list of Florida when it comes to sinkholes. To me, this place is way too crowded I am used to living in the middle of the sticks, and was raised in a town of about 5,000 people. It kind of does have the small town look, because there are so many houses here but not nearly as many businesses. We get a lot of retirees, snow birds, and people that commute to Tampa. To me, a city invokes images of tall buildings, apartments, condos, but here it is mostly just houses stacked upon houses Of course, being that everything is fairly far spaced apart, everyone gets in their cars to go everywhere, which congests traffic. Our public transport is okay, but rarely used and only arrives at the bus stops every hour.

Live and let live

That's amazing you can get a house for that mate - but I'm glad you could get one and that you'll be able to move up in the housing market a bit.

Melbourne is very expensive - my wife's house was about 350 or so I think - about 14 years ago. Now it'd be worth around the 8 or 9 hundred mark. You don't get much for less than a million here - not in a decent area anyway.

Yeah - I won't be moving anywhere tbh. I'd miss my wife and my son too much anyway. If anything I'll just spend a bit more time up in SE Asia as I get older - especially Bali of course, I know that place very well and I have a few friends there. Really nice people.

I could go and live in the Uk if I wanted to - I have a British passport because of my Dad, but I'll probably just visit and try and find nice old books.

Hopefully getting hired. I really need this. Not just financially but to really focus on myself. I'm just tired. Just thinking about having a job makes somewhat happy because I been holding out in having things for a very long time.
